We all (hopefully) realize that the current Mayan calendar Long Count cycle ends on December 21st, 2012, or 12/21/2012. What is less commonly known is that the actual moment of cycle is 11:11 AM GMT on that date. 11:11 is also a tetrahedral number, as Richard likes to say, as it is conencted mathmatically to both 19.47 and 33, two crucially significant numbers in the whole Hyperdimensional Physics matrix.
Gieven that, I found it interesting that the Vatican's chief astronomer was quoted today (11/11/09) as saying that a recent Vatican conference on the existence of ET's reached the conclusion that ET is probably out there, if not maybe visiting right now. At the least, these news stories are new fodder for the "Obama is the disclosure President" crowd, of which my co-author is a member.
The symbolism of it all is intruiging to me, although I suspect that 11/11/2011 (11:11:11, or 33) will be a far more interesting day.
Still and all, kinda cool.
